- For input arguments x1,x2,x3, set default values x1def,x2def,x3def as a list of as parameter-value pairs using easydefaults:
easydefaults('x1',x1def,'x2',x2def,'x3',x3def);

- Defaults can be set for any input argument, whether it’s an explicit input or as part of a parameter-value pair:
function dummy_function(x,varargin)
easydefaults('x',1,'y',2);
...
end

- easydefaults and easyparse can in principle be used in either order, but it is usually better to parse first and fill in defaults after:
function dummy_function(x,varargin)
easyparse(varargin,'y')
easydefaults('x',1,'y',2);
...
end

CAVEAT UTILITOR: this function relies on evals and assignin statements. Input checking is performed to limit potential damage, but use at your own risk.

One of a series of simple functions to provide easier input parsing within MATLAB.
